Just got back from the matinee with my wife.  Awesome movie.  There was just the right mix of action, dialogue and humor.  Will definitely see it again on the big screen before it goes away.

The final scene was pure, gratuitous Whedon.  With the way he knocked this one out of the park, he was due some indulgence.    ;D

Best moment of the movie: Hulk beating the **** out of Loki at the end.  Me, my wife, and everyone I could see around me had their mouths dropped open in disbelief.  So sick.
This is what happens when you invade Wakanda

That, and when the guy was playing Galaga.

Stark in the helli carrier bridge when he looked around at the monitors with one hand over an eye, took me a second to work out what he was doing, then when he said it I laughed so hard.

Same here, my favorite moment of the movie (in a movie that was full of them).  That got big cheers in the showing we went to on Saturday as well.  I agree with everything that everyone has said...just an amazing movie.  Deserves all the acclaim (and money) it is getting.  I hope to see it again before it leaves theaters.

That and when Hulk and Thor finish tearing into a big alien creature.  Thor looks ready to shake his hand only to have Hulk knock him out.  Priceless.

This...

Although my only real beef is that Hulk went from uncontrollable raging monster to Superhero with no real explanation.  I'm still not hip on the lineup they used (again Mr and Mrs Pym would have been my choice).  That said...it was absolutely and totally awesome.  I've been a Marvel and Avengers fan since I started reading comics in 4th grade.  I got chills when they circled up in uniform down on the street.  Maybe next time Cap will yell "Avengers Assemble!"

This was the same question my wife had leaving the theater.  Not sure how to explain that one either...

I took it that the Hulk is somewhat simple minded and just needed to be pointed in the right direction.  If you go back to the TV show, he wasn't without heart or compassion.  When there's an invasion, Cap points him at the bad guys and he goes to town, but he still saves that punch for Thor, so he's not all Super Hero exactly.  You also have to think that the Hulk learns and has memmories just like Banner does.  Maybe he starts figuring out what side to be on after the Hellicarier battle.

Thanks for reminding me Justin...the first Hulk transformation with the ripping shirt was good flashbacks to the TV show
